Tailoring Wellness Pet Exams to Each Patient
At The Village Vets of Decatur, we consider ourselves a full-blown animal hospital with unique pet exams tailored to each individual patient. We don’t offer cookie-cutter veterinary medicine because every pet deserves care suited to their particular needs and lifestyle. When you come to us for pet wellness care, you can be sure that your furry family receives the highest quality medicine that meets their every need.
Parasite prevention is an essential component of your pet’s overall well-being. With year-round protection, they are safe from pesky parasites as well as the dangerous diseases they carry. Many different preventatives are on the market, but our veterinarians can help you choose the right one that suits your pet’s lifestyle and your abilities.
In our area, heartworm disease is a very real concern. Infected mosquitos transfer heartworms to your dog or cat when they bite. These parasites move through the bloodstream and lodge themselves in blood vessels around the heart and lungs. Over time, they grow and multiply and pose a very serious risk to your pet. Heartworms are more prevalent in dogs because cats are atypical hosts for heartworms; however, that doesn’t mean cats are not still at risk. Cats may still develop heartworm disease, and in their case, there is no cure, so prevention is the only option. Many heartworm preventatives for both cats and dogs also protect against other parasites such as tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, and more. Ask one of our veterinarians about the right heartworm preventative for you and your pet.
